Ceramics Lesson- Basics and Sprig Moulds

My first lesson of the current course UAL Level 3 foundation Diploma in Art and Design was a ceramics lesson learning the basics including wedging, kneading, rolling out etc.

I also learnt about relief imprints, an relief decorations. Creating marks using wooden tools to create designs free hand or using stamps such as above ‘PORTUGAL’ and creating texture to the clay.

I also experimented with sprigs | a mould to create a 3d relief decoration.| I used newspaper to create texture to my clay for the ‘Dementia brief’ to represent decaying skin. I used a face sprig to give a typical base of a face to work on. I wouldn’t say my ceramics is the best of my work but this blog is to share my journey :).

In the end I didn’t go ahead with the ceramics as apart of my dementia project (will be clear in the next weeks when I upload posts). however I gave it my best shot. that’s my piece of advice to you all- just try your best regardless
